Final phases of "Progress-65" set to begin

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Get ready for more road construction on Interstate 65 in Montgomery.

The final phases of that existing widening project will take place over the next 3 weeks. This time, it's focusing around the Mill Street overpass and the Alabama river bridge.

Bridge work is already underway, but now workers are focusing on pavement widening.

"It's a necessary evil," said Dept. of Transportation spokesman Tony Harris. "We think that part of the work can be finished later this summer to restore the full flow of traffic through that area."

"Progress 65" as it's called, is about two-thirds of the way completed.
